Mitchell Marner Scores Twice In Game 1 Victory

How the Leafs can win Round 1 and how the Bruins can prevent that from happening

They didn't look like kids who wandered into a bar brawl.

Marner was a big part of that with his two-goal game, including being just the fifth player to score a shorthanded goal on a penalty shot in the playoffs. This game followed them around all season, more or less, right to the end.

Boston, MA- The post-season for the 2018-19 National Hockey League campaign finally began this week, and it's safe to say things got off to a pretty bad beginning for the Boston Bruins.

The Leafs were ready. They turned the puck over in high danger areas.

"We went through our lineup", Cassidy said. When the horn sounded, it was 4-1. The Toronto Maple Leafs showed just how explosive they can be, scoring four goals without taking advantage of the power play and scoring on 12.1 percent of their total shots.

The Maple Leafs were bounced by the Bruins in seven games last spring, and Matthews faced significant scrutiny after registering just two points in the series.

"When you don't see a team for a while, when you talk about, "Oh, they're going to do this and stretch you out" and all of a sudden they do it and it's in your net, it gets your attention", Cassidy said. This was what everyone had been waiting for. "I thought we did a good job tracking them". "We gave them a lot".

Blue Jackets stun Lightning to take 2-0 series lead
The 2018 second overall pick will try to help Carolina even its first-round series against Washington in Game 2 Saturday (3 p.m. The Columbus Blue Jackets are making a serious bid to knock the team with the best regular-season record out of the playoffs.

The speed was one part. That's the playoffs. That's how you've got to kind of prepare yourself.

It's not easy to hit or stop Nylander, either. Connor Brown threw a rib-shaker. Making an impact in limited minutes: Trevor Moore ...

It's hard to hit what you can't catch. "It was a good start, eh?"

Toronto goaltender Frederik Andersen made 37 saves and frustrated the Bruins on several occasions.

And the Tavares-Mitch Marner-Zach Hyman line was so effective the Bruins took the Bergeron line away from it late, and targeted Auston Matthews instead. Then in the second period, the old bugaboo of the short-handed goal against came back to haunt the Bruins. Do that often enough, you probably win the series. I've been down this road too many times. We've been exposed by them on those breakaways and you give up two, three in a row that period, so shame on us.

Toronto talked about pressuring the Boston defence with speed and physicality, with Kadri talking about heads on swivels. It was Toronto's first successful postseason penalty shot since Mats Sundin converted in 1999. They allowed breakaway after breakaway in a disastrous second period. Teams have changed, players have changed but the uniform crest hasn't, so we know what they're capable of. Tavares has eight goals and three assists over the last 10 games for Toronto.

"In our situation now it's a little bit different than it was", Babcock said. I'm ready to be convinced that the Leafs are better than I think. The other guy gets to do whatever he wants. A dismal 4-8-2 finish to their schedule locked the Maple Leafs into third place in the Atlantic Division, setting the stage for a second straight opening-round meeting with Boston.
